I guess I wasn't clear. I wasn't suggesting colocation. By "make it look
like" I was suggesting an "as if" approach. Where the files live doesn't

Now it may be the only way to achieve that for some compilers is
colocation, but I was assuming that for most compilers there is some what
to tell them "always look here for files, as well as looking in the
compiler's own directories."
